“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:5-8
As Christmas, we see Christ’s willingness to submit to His Father’s will by leaving the glories of heaven and becoming like one of us. Not only was Christ obedient to His heavenly Father, He also was obedient to the law, perfectly keeping each command and living the life you and I cannot live. This perfect obedience led Him to the cross where He paid for your sin, and fulfilled God’s plan to restore your soul.
